Summer Jubilee BBQ

After exams have finished, HackSoc will be doing our patriotic duty and hosting a BBQ to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee (which is the day after.) This will be a great place to unwind from the stresses of exams which will have just finished! As this event is a BBQ, food and drink will be provided. If you are thinking of coming along, please can you fill out a quick form at hacksoc. Read more...

On the 28th of May, HackSoc and Medieval Combat Society will be going out for a joint pub crawl! We’ll start at the White Hart at 7pm.

Programming Café

Hello and welcome to our programming cafe events! This is a much more laid back event than our workshops and talks, just rock up and work on a project, and speak to other people about their projects! We’ll be encouraging people to do a brief show and tell towards the end, and you may end up spotlit in our newsletter! We will also have coffee, tea, and biscuits. The event will take place in A07, in the Computer Science Building. Read more...

Intel OneAPI Workshop

We’ll be starting off the term on the 5th of May at 7PM, Computer Science A07 with an event sponsored by Intel, where we will talk about OneAPI and teach you how to use it to plot the Mandelbrot set! But what is OneAPI? It’s a toolkit for enabling accelerated heterogeneous computing that is platform and vendor agnostic. This promises to be a very interesting workshop, so be sure to come along!
